While America's forever wars continue to rage abroad, the streaming wars are starting to heat up at home.
On Monday, the Walt Disney Company announced that its brand new online streaming service, aptly titled Disney+, will launch an all-out assault on eyeballs around the world with an arsenal of your favorite content starting on November 12th. Marvel Cinematic Universe content! Star Wars content! Pixar content! Classic Disney animation content!
While the initial Disney+ content lineup looks like the most overpowered alliance since NATO, there's one addition of particular interest hidden in Disney's massive Twitter announcement, an elite strike force with a unique mission that stands ready to eliminate streaming enemies like Netflix and Hulu no matter where they may hide.
That's right, I'm talking about Operation Dumbo Drop — and no, I am not fucking around.
President Donald Trump will upgrade Green Beret Master Sergeant Matthew O. Williams' Silver Star to the Medal of Honor for his bravery in Afghanistan, officials announced on Thursday.
Williams was serving with Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha 3336 on April 6, 2008, when he braved enemy fire to save the lives of four critically-wounded soldiers and prevent the lead element of his assault force from being overrun by the enemy, a White House news release says.
NAIROBI (Reuters) - Cameras picked up the two white trucks carrying bombs and fighters through the bush towards Somalia's most secure military base, home to U.S. special forces, foreign trainers and the Somali special forces they mentor.
The alarm was raised. By the time the al Shabaab insurgents were a few hundred yards from the perimeter of Baledogle military airfield on Monday, Danaab - Somalia's elite commandos - were waiting, their trainers beside them.
One truck bomb detonated far from the perimeter fence. Eight attackers in uniforms jumped from the other, but Danaab soldiers gunned them down almost immediately, said a Somali security official.
Then the second truck was hit by a U.S. air strike. The explosion was captured on video footage provided to Reuters by two security experts.

Navy SEAL and Marine Raider could dodge sexual assault charges in hazing death of Green Beret in Mali
NORFOLK, Va. -- They called it Operation Tossed Salad and the hasty plan, concocted over several hours at various clubs in Bamako, Mali, was to haze an Army Green Beret.
Instead, Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar died sometime in the early morning of June 4, 2017, after four special operators broke into his room while he was sleeping, taped him up, placed him in a chokehold, then tried to cover up their actions. On Monday, a Navy SEAL and Marine Raider, the last of four service members currently charged in the case, made their first court appearances in front a preliminary hearing officer at Naval Station Norfolk, who will help determine whether there is enough evidence for the military to pursue the case.
Trump's nominee to lead the Navy vows to find 'root causes' of SEAL misconduct despite empty ethics training review
President Donald Trump's nominee for the Navy's top officer wants to identify the "root causes" of the slew of misconduct that's roiled the Naval Special Warfare community in recent years despite a relatively recent Pentagon review that found "no gaps" in the ethics and professional training for U.S. special operations forces.
